Pontefract, West Yorkshire, UK
Asking Price:
Net Profit:
Available on request


Once in a generation opportunity to acquire a long-established and tremendously busy bakery in West Yorkshire. The bakery has operated from these premises for over 100 years we believe, and has continued trading very successfully under the current ownership for the last 40 years. The owners intend to retire now, leaving a huge opportunity for energetic new owners to take over this business which is considered an institution in this close-knit but densely populated township.
THE BUSINESS - The business trades from the retail shop premises and enjoys excellent profit margins as they make most of their own pies and breads and only sell within their shop and not through lower margin wholesale outlets. The shop has an average turnover of between £8,000 and £9,000 per week, over very short opening hours. Sales turnover for the year to 31 March 2023 was £452,179 net of VAT and the financial accounts show tremendous net profits. Detailed trading and Profit & Loss accounts will be made available to interested parties who have formally viewed the property.
THE PREMISES - The business and premises are available on a leasehold basis, but offers on the freehold interest would be considered. The premises comprise:-
Ground floor: Lock-up shop front with sales counter and several substantial, back of house, product prep areas, bakehouse area with commercial baking ovens, two walk-in fridges and lots of storage.
